They interviewed my father, who is 91 years old to preserve his memories as a WW2 veteran. He was treated wonderfully with honor and respect for his service. The Norton is more than just Art,...... It is preserving history.

We took a granddaughter there for the purpose of taking pictures of a granddaughter suitable for framing. Success was ours! The surroundings were beautiful, with an abundance of flowering plants,benches, and lush grass. We were thrilled with the results. Scored at the top!

Visiting to S'Port for other purposes and decided to make a Dad's- Daughter road trip day with my 19 yr old. She is artsy and enjoys adventure. After a good breakfast and a stop at the guitar shop, we came here "to see" . At first we were a little skeptical. Then I saw the original Remington painting. We inquired... More

What a great collection. My favorites are the American paintings section. I fell in love with several paintings here. My favorite is Thyangboche Monestary painted by Peter Ellenshaw - breathtaking! Bob Timberlake's Snow at the Studio is also lovely. And there are many more! The ground and neighborhood are also very beautiful.

Just a walk around the grounds is relaxing but especially in the spring when the 100s of azalea bushes are in bloom. The gallery always features first class works.

Didn't expect this at all, especially in Shreveport!! Must see. Make sure you have a couple hours. There are all kinds of things to see. Great works by Remington and others. There are plenty of paintings and sculptures as well as firearms and dolls and photography. It's a hodgepodge of different eras nicely laid out. This is a great thing... More

The museum is tucked away in a lovely, established neighborhood. I was surprised at how large the museum was, the caliber of artists' works present, and and variety of art contained in the exhibits. It's a lovely place to spend an afternoon. There is no admission charge.

Wow, what a wonderful museum. As you walk in the front door(free admission), the first two paintings you see are done by Asher Durand, landscape artist of the Hudson River School movement--very impressive--no telling what they're worth. Whole section dedicated to the Hudson River movement. Large number of bronzes by Fredric Remington and western art by Remington and Charles Marion... More
